Ryan Relapse?

with 3 comments

I’m still trying to decide if being called “intellectually honest” rather than a die-hard Jays homer by the Tao of Stieb is a compliment or not, but here we go again: B.J. Ryan really was not being squeezed at all by the ump this afternoon. Totally his bad to give Miguel @#$@#$ Cairo a free pass and face the Mariners’ cleanup man in a critical situation.

Today’s fun fact of the day: The 2008 Toronto Blue Jays are on pace to break…well, let’s call a spade a spade…SMASH, the all-time record for grounding into double plays with 186. The Red Sox are the current holders with a mere 174 in 1990. But good news- they made the playoffs!!! (And were swept in the first round by Oakland).

  2. How did the strike zone in the 9th compare to earlier innings? Barajas specifically said he was called for strikes when batting that he didn’t get when catching.

  3. I don’t know if you are able to do this trick, but can you answer Barajas’ statement,

    ”I felt like the second pitch to me was a ball off the plate and he called it a strike. That’s fine, I’m OK with that,” said Barajas. ”Then I see B.J. hit the same spot and it’s called a ball. It’s a little frustrating.
